40K Hobby: Forge World Blight Drone

2 Minute Read
Dec 1 2011

A Daemon manifesting as a machine, these formidable daemon engines of the Plague God poison and corrupt the battlefield. Complete resin kit.  Here’s my take on one…

I have absolutely loved the Vraks campaign books and have a massive Chaos Renegade army to show for it.  One of my favorite models from the series is the dreaded Blight Drone.  I had a blast painting it.

I made extensive use of pigments to do the rust effects on the rotted carapace.  If there is interest I can try to write up an article on weathering.  You can also check out these three classics on painting rusty vehicles, rotten flesh, and sickly skin.

For the flesh I tried to make it very sore and swollen looking and highlight pustules.  I thought about doing a fancy mount for it but haven’t done it yet.  I may still go back and do it.

Anyway, I just thought some people might enjoy seeing another take on the Blight drone. Sometimes you just have to show off your latest creation!

Thanks for looking.
